Beans thoran(dry curry with coconut)

Beans are one of my husbands favorite vegetable. Even I love beans infact I love all vegetables. Beans besides being tasty they are good for health. They provide enough fibre to our body. Remember always go for greens they give you good amount of iron, fibre and several other vitamins especially vitamin A. You can cook beans in several different ways. I saw many of the American families have Beans steam cooked and seasoned with some salt or pepper or just they allow it to sizzle on a frying pan after boiling and season some sesame seeds. Now stories apart coming to our recipe,
This recipe recommends boiling of beans if you are conscious about the nutrition you can directly fry them, it takes long though. But the boiled version tastes good. The taste of this thoran also depends on how thin you slice beans. Coming to recipe
